What makes us laugh? What is the meaning of all the jokes we tell each other? This original book is as much an invitation to laugh, to entertain, to look at the sunny side of life, as it is an invitation to become aware of the hidden meanings of our psychological tensions that humor has the ability to reveal and cure.
In the first part of the book, the author presents stories of the famous 13th-century Muslim humorist, Mollah Nasr Eddine, which prove to be a treasure of wisdom and common sense beneath an apparent foolishness. The second part invites us to discover the smiling gardens of Jewish humor, where people try to cope with their complex and ambivalent relationships with God, money, women or their neighbors. With clear and simple comments and interpretations, Moussa Nabati presents humor as a noble and serious subject meant to help find a positive, liberating and fulfilling solution to our concerns.
